Kanize Kamarie Jackson went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, August 5, 2020. He was born on April 28, 2000 to Trayvis Hutchison and Meiko Jackson.
Kanize began his education in the Asheville City schools and completed it at the Buncombe County schools. As soon as he was able to work, he obtained jobs in the food service industry working at various restaurants in Asheville and Hendersonville and enjoyed cooking. Kanize was a highly active video game player and kept in contact with friends and cousins while playing online video games. He had a passion and talent for music. His mother and sisters were his main goal and focus. Kanize worked hard to help his mother as he was the only male in the household and stepped up in a big way to help with his younger sisters.
Kanize was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Carol Ligon and Leon Jackson; paternal grandparents, George Hutchison Sr. and Irene Hutchison.
Left to cherish his memory are parents, Trayvis Hutchison and Meiko Jackson; sisters, Hali Ferguson, Kariah Singleton, Chi’Yara Bennett, Jhy’nieria Jones and Ta’Lyiah Hutchison; brothers, Robert Gilliam, Trequel Hutchison, Teonne Hutchison, Rhy’mir Jones and Sevyn Jones; a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
It is hard to put into words all his accomplishments and achievements that were just getting started. We were proud of the young man he was shaping up to be, but God needed him to come do some work. Consequently, his time on earth was short. We are thankful for the memories and 20 years of life, but understand he had a bigger position to fill.
